Michigan film tax credits get renewed support

Lead in text: 
State lawmakers added money back into the program in 2012 after Gov. Snyder sought an earlier round of cuts the year before.
Michigan film producers and some lawmakers say they will lobby to maintain the state's $50 million film credits cap, which could be slashed 50% under Republican Gov. Rick Snyder's budget proposal. Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, a fellow Republican, said the reduction is "too drastic" and would devastate workers in the film industry.
